This academic year we will be trialing running our groups during the school day rather than after school. This will be open to children with a diagnosis of ASD and a member of staff from their school. Look out for further information on Facebook, on our website and also from your child’s school SENDCO.
This will enable staff to see ASD support strategies in action and for them to take these strategies back to school providing a consistent approach for the children. We will also be arranging seasonal after school activities at Columbia Grange and drop in sessions held at your child’s school for parents and staff. School SENDCOs will make you aware of these dates.
